The pregnant COVID-19 patient who gave birth to a baby boy while on admission at the Tarkwa Apinto Government Hospital has recovered and been discharged.
She was discharged after testing negative for COVID-19 twice in line with protocols.
This comes two weeks after the baby boy she delivered also tested negative for the virus after the required tests.
Dr. Joseph Darko of the Apinto Government Hospital, who led her delivery, told Citi News it was double joy for staff as one of the Hospital’s midwives who also earlier tested positive for COVID-19 on the job was also discharged on the same day.

“It is with great joy we had to discharge our COVID-19 pregnant mother and her baby. In fact, she underwent surgery and had a baby boy whose sample also came out negative. Her second sample came negative and so she was declared recovered of COVID-19.”
“She was given a guard of honour in appreciation of a long stay here. We had to do this in the midst of challenges but had a few people helping us to some level, hence we appreciate those people. We also had one of our midwives who got infected also recovering and discharged.”
